The first trials of a self-navigating ship have concluded. NYK conducted manned tests with a car carrier last month from Okinawa to Kochi Prefecture and  from Nagoya to Yokohama. The shipping line says it will share the technology, developed by Japan Marine Science, which uses radar and automatic identification system signals, which avoid collisions.  The line will operate more trials next year to consider the impact of waves and wind, reports Nikkei Asian Review. You can see a video of one of the trials here.
